Program description

BA (Hons) Journalism and Media & Culture

By studying Journalism and Media & Culture in combination, you will have opportunities to explore journalism as it is practised in today's world alongside gaining broader, contextual understanding of the media and contemporary culture.

Both subject areas enable you to benefit from your lecturers' cutting edge research and industry practice in aspects of journalism, media and culture - from 'green' computer games and popular music to perceptions of women newsreaders and online, citizen journalism. If you are interested in journalism as part of our wider contemporary culture of communication, and in the ways that media communication at once reflect and shape today's world, then Journalism and Media & Culture, with their mix of practical, hands-on learning and academic study, may be well be an ideal program for you.
